Inspire their remarkable with us
Aylward Academy is an oversubscribed 11-19 non-selective state school with a thriving Sixth Form. It is proud to serve its surrounding communities but is only rated as a 'Good' school by OfSTED and, in our mind, good is not good enough.
The Executive Director for Aylward Academy was previously responsible for the turnaround at Harris Academy Battersea, a school which rose from bottom in Wandsworth to become one of the top non-selective schools in the country. Both he and the Principal at Aylward are determined that the school becomes outstanding as soon as possible and not a middling outstanding but one of the most outstanding schools in the country. With that in mind, we are advertising for exceptional staff and do so with the obvious understanding that their remuneration should match the level of expertise that we are seeking. We want people with aspirations to lead schools of their own, people who will fight alongside their students for outcomes that will open doors otherwise closed to them and people who understand that care manifests itself in an absolute intolerance of mediocrity. We wish to build headteachers of the future whilst securing the futures of those children who have entrusted their education to us.
As a Lead Practitioner, you will be pivotal in redefining what is possible for our students. You will be excellent in your classroom practice and be able to lead others in their own pursuit of excellence. You will provide clarity, structure and vision for a group of staff who are committed to driving Aylward Academy forward. At its best, the school will never be a group of individual superstars; it will be a fiercely determined collective, working together without ego for the best interests of our pupils.
In terms of the broader school, we recognise that teaching is a demanding career and it is our aim to make sure that staff who have chosen to join the profession are as well supported as they can be. We have a zero tolerance approach to anything that interrupts the learning in a classroom and our central team deals with all behaviour issues, non-completion of homework, phone-calls and detentions to make sure that teachers are as free as possible to do the three things that matter most: mark, plan and teach.
As part of a national trust, you will receive all the support you would expect but most importantly, you will be part of a dynamic, resilient and focused group of professionals whose efforts as a whole will mean better lives for every single pupil who walks through our doors.
Should you wish to find out more then we would be more than happy to speak to you. You can contact the Executive Director using or the Principal using We look forward to hearing from you.
Closing date: Monday 10 May 2021
